thank you for those impressions, fragger. Now I can play GTA and Hitman and whatnot in peace while waiting for more content to be delivered by Hello. :-D

No worries :)

Here's a few Freighter screenies:


Docking with the Freighter. As with the space stations, when you get close enough a tractor beam or something will pull you in. Note the proximity of the @#$%& asteroids. This seems par for the course now.

My original Skywalker Special parked inside the Freighter's hanger deck. There are three main docking areas in the Hanger, and it's a short walk from one to another. It's all one big open space, so you can see other ships come and go. There's considerably more detail than there is on the spastas, which doesn't help the awful frame rate any. Jerky, jerky, jerky.

On the Bridge. Several corridors and staircases needed to be negotiated to get here, with a few locked doors along the way. Dunno if there's anything behind them, but the lack of "Atlas Pass" messages when standing in front of them tells me they exist purely for decoration. Maybe they unlock once you purchase the Freighter and can build a base inside, whatever that entails.

"Arrr, Oi be the Cap'n of dis ship!" He's fluent in English, as you can see here.

Who says different races cannot coexist in harmony? Like humans, they're obsessed with their devices. They're probably all on Twitter (or Squawker or Grunter or whatever the alien equivalent is).

I have yet to get back into the game. I'm waiting for the next update that supposedly will allow you to rebind the keys for the quick menus, the build one prevents me from walking backwards, as I have the Z key bound to that.

Also, I think once you do establish a base on a planet, you can build a teleport device to bring you to the station to buy and sell stuff. Not sure if you can build one on a freighter or not.

I heard that you can teleport to (and likely from) your freighter.

Patch 1.12 is out, and now I can play again as they allow remapping the Z and X keys for the build and quick access menus.

Other minor fixes for stuff I don't really care about as well.

I'm glad you can now remap those keys. Nothing more annoying than "wrong" keys you can't change.
